Vintage Weekly: Malmöhus Castle circa 1973-1974

museum6-2Vintage Weekly: One of the turrets of Malmöhus Castle in the beginning of the 1970s taken with a borrowed Hasselblad with 6 cm * 6 cm positive color film. A lot of dust removed from the sky.

The original castle was built by Eric of Pomerania in 1434 and it was said to be his favourite castle. Erik of Pomerania was nephew to Queen Margaret of Denmark, Norway and Sweden (Margareta, Magrethe) and was grandson to the king Valdemar Atterdag of Denmark.

The earl of Bothwell is also said to have been imprisoned for a while at the castle.
